Abstract
In this contribution we review some recent work on the non-commutative geometry of branes on group manifolds. In particular, we show how fuzzy spaces arise in this context from an exact world-sheet description and we sketch the construction of a low-energy effective action for massless open string modes. The latter is given by a combination of a Yang-Mills and a Chern-Simons like functional on the fuzzy world-volume. It can be used to study condensation on various brane configurations in curved backgrounds.
